Daimler debuts Econic range with production slots available for region’s fleets

DCV MENA is shortening delivery times to a matter of months, confirms general manager Olaf Petersen

Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA FZE (DCV MENA) has launched its new range of Mercedes-Benz’ Econic trucks into the Midlde East and North Africa region.

First introduced in 1998, the Econic has enjoyed significant success in multiple European markets for over two decades due to its safety, efficiency, ergonomics and reduced impact on the environment – and the latest Econic will set new benchmarks in the market, claims the German giant.

“The Econic is the proven choice for airport ground services, municipality and waste management applications,” it added in a statement.

The Econic is designed as a versatile low-entry truck making it suitable for the need for cleaner urban transport in an era where mobility, logistics, the environment and quality of life are all important priorities for fleets.

According to DCV MENA, “the trucks are efficient, powerful and reliable, and offer maximum safety for those in the surrounding environment, as well as optimum working conditions for the driver and/or crew. With a choice of engine outputs and transmissions to suit a variety of applications, Econic is an efficient and responsible response to the challenge of increasing global emissions levels.”

“After the success of the Mercedes-Benz Econic worldwide, we are excited to bring it to the region. Since its launch in 1989, it has proven itself as a reliable truck across numerous industries and markets due to its versatility, safety and efficiency,” explained Olaf Petersen, general manager, Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA.

The Econic was on display at this week’s Truck and Fleet Conference in Dubai. During the event, experts and delegates expressed concern over the extended delivery times of trucks due to disruption in the global supply chain. Petersen, however, explained that the firm has secured production slots for customers in the region.

“With the MENA launch of the proven Econic, DCV MENA is inviting interested parties to reach out for a demonstration of the vehicle and is pleased to note that production slots are immediately available, thus allowing for short delivery timelines of only a few months.”
